About Our Company

Our History & Mission


Advanced Cable Bus, Inc. was founded in 2007 by an experienced, technically savvy and team-oriented group of engineering professionals with more than 50 years combined experience in the power distribution industry.

Our team has grown since then, but our goals remain the same: produce safe, reliable, maintenance-free power systems; make them easy to install; and provide excellent service throughout every stage of every project.

Personalized customer service underlies our approach, guiding each project to completion and ensuring the best possible outcome for our clients and their businesses.


We look forward to working with you.


 

Cable Bus Overview

What is Cable Bus?


Cable Bus is a system for distributing power from one electrical apparatus to another using insulated power cables inside of a protective metal housing.


“An assembly of units or sections with insulated conductors having associated fittings forming a structural system used to securely fasten or support conductors and conductor terminations in a completely enclosed, ventilated, protective metal housing. This assembly is designed to carry fault current and to withstand the magnetic forces of such current.

Informational Note: Cablebus is ordinarily assembled at the point of installation from the components furnished or specified by the manufacturer in accordance with instructions for the specific job.”


—NEC 2014 (USA)
Section 370: Cablebus

Cable Bus is designed to carry large amounts of electrical power for use within power generation and industrial plants for service entrances, main feeders, distribution applications, and retrofits for existing power systems. Each Advanced Cable Bus system is custom designed and manufactured to meet your specific job requirements.

Uniform conductor spacing is maintained by our custom-manufactured Cable Support Blocks, which are themselves held in place by the U-Form Short Circuit Braces welded into each enclosure section. The combination of the Cable Support Blocks and the Short Circuit Braces allows our systems to withstand short circuit forces of up to 100kA RMS symmetrical, keeping personnel and equipment safe if a fault occurs.

Advanced Cable Bus manufactures enclosure covers that are 50% ventilated. The ventilation and conductor spacing allow our systems to operate at free air rating. Each cable can conduct more power without a corresponding rise in temperature. Accordingly, Cable Bus systems employ fewer cables than cables in tray or cables in conduit, which impacts project costs significantly.

Advanced Cable Bus systems have an ampacity range from 800A to 6000A, and voltage ratings of 480V, 600V, 5kV, 15kV, 25kV, 35kV, and occasionally up to 69kV. Typical applications include connections between transformers and switchgear, tie connections between two pieces of switchgear, between motor control centers and large motors, or between generators and generator breakers or generator step-up transformers. We commonly work on industrial facilities and other types of applications where a large amount of current is needed.

ClientMeg-A-Ron Engineering
SizeMedium, 3 Bus Runs
System Rating(s)600V Main Incoming, 1600A & 2500A
DescriptionThe main power feeders for the new Museum of Human Rights in Winnipeg, Manitoba is comprised of multiple bus runs from transformer secondaries across a service road. The cable bus runs cross the service road via underground prefabricated trenches. The Museum design and construction, starting in 2009, is one of the most innovative in Canada and required flexibility for its electrical feeders as well as reliability and low cost, which led to cable bus as the choice for main feeders.


Telecommunication Data Centers
Installation TypeData Center Main Feeders, Back-Up Feeders, and UPS Feeders
ClientsMultiple Electrical Contractors
SizeMultiple Projects, totaling over $1 million
System Rating(s)600V Service Feeders, 3000A – 5000A
DescriptionPower feeders for data centers normally include primary and back-up feeders for the supply circuits and UPS systems. In some locations, cable bus is used as back-up while other locations use cable bus for primary feeders as well. Companies that have used cable bus in their facilities in some capacity include AT&T, T-Mobile, Google, and Microsoft. Advanced Cable Bus, Inc. have supplied cable bus for various data centers in the South Eastern US.


Oil Sands Facilities
Installation TypeOil Sands Extraction and Processing main medium voltage feeds, medium voltage and low voltage distribution load feeders
ClientsMultiple engineering firms and end users throughout Canada and US
SizeMultiple Projects, totaling over $1 million
System Rating(s)35kV, 15kV, 8kV, 5kV and 600V Service Feeders, 1200A – 4000A
DescriptionSeveral oil sands companies have specified cable bus as the preferred electrical feeder method over other methods, based on the design features, costs, and the ability to withstand extreme climate conditions outdoors without requiring constant maintenance. Companies that have used cable bus at their facilities include Shell Canada, Canadian Natural Resources Limited, Suncor, Husky Oil, and Petro Canada.


Hydroelectric and Thermal Main Power Plant Feeders
Installation TypeMain generator feeders for hydroelectric and thermal plants.
ClientsMultiple engineering firms and end users throughout Canada and US
SizeMultiple Projects, totaling over $ 1 million
System Rating(s)35kV and 15kV Feeders, 2500A – 4000A
DescriptionPower plants that require long feeder circuits or flexibility in routing have used cable bus as the feeder of choice. Thermal plants throughout North America have used cable bus, as well as hydroelectric plants in locations such as South America, Southeast Asia, and North America.


Photoelectric Power Plant Collector Feeders
Installation TypeConnection links from the photovoltaic solar arrays to the step-up transformers.
ClientsMultiple engineering firms throughout US
SizeMultiple Projects, totaling over $ 250,000
System Rating(s)2kV and 600V
DescriptionPhotovoltaic plants often consist of multiple arrays of PV panels that are collected and fed to step-up transformers before being connected to the main outgoing feeders. Cable bus has been used for the link between the collector switchgear and the step-up transformers in several PV plant installations throughout the Western US. The feeders are usually short in length, and the selection of cable bus for the feeder link is based on short-circuit withstand qualities and cost.

ClientsParsons Electric (Minneapolis, MN)
SizeMultiple Projects, totaling over $1 million
System Rating(s)600V Service Feeders, 3000A – 5000A
DescriptionPower feeders for data centers normally include primary and back-up feeders for the supply circuits and UPS systems. In some locations, cable bus is used as back-up while other locations use cable bus for primary feeders as well. For especially long circuit lengths in new constructions Advanced Cable Bus, Inc. performed calculations to ensure that the supplied design meets the voltage drop and power loss requirements.

System Rating(s)35kV, 15kV, 8kV, 5kV and 600V Service Feeders, 1200A – 4000A
DescriptionCable bus has become a preferred option for several engineering groups in the US and Canada, and Advanced Cable Bus, Inc. has been selected to supply cable bus for several large and medium mining projects. In Latin America, the cable bus systems were specified with the goal of having reliable electrical feeders with materials that are suitable for the tropical climate. Cable bus was used for the mining processing plant’s main 35kV feeders, and distribution feeders at 15kV, 8kV, 5kV, and 600V including motor control feeders. Other served loads include milling and crushing motor loads, and lighting/heating loads.
